Some people wait in line for five hours just to get their fix at Austins famous Franklin Barbecue. And who can blame them? The establishment is less than 10 years old but has been cited as the nations best.
Of course, President Obama is not some people. After a campaign-style speech in Austin on Thursday afternoon, the commander in chief made a stop by Franklin Barbecue and was quickly ushered to the front of the line.
Its common practice to let a president cut to the front of the line at a dining establishment. After all, the president arguably has the busiest schedule on the planet. Plus, having a president standing in one place only creates headaches for everyone else who is just trying to get some food.

“I wish I owned the place...”
I wouldn’t want to own that place. Haven’t some of the eating establishments he visited gone under. Like some kind of Zulu curse or something.
I wouldn’t want my business tainted in such a fashion, or to throw my employees out when I go under,

Just check the White House's Daily Schedule. If this lazy bum had to punch in and punch out, he wouldn't even qualify for Obamacare's 30 hours.
That's right Yahoo, spend half the article desperately trying to convince your readers that its OK for Obama to cut in front of the common people. Methinks they doth protest too much.
It don’t matter who’s in Austin, Bob Wills is still the King!
He’s a fag
I go to Austin often enough, and I’ve never heard of Franklins.......but I’ve been to the Salt Lick ....love it!
Sen. Lindsay Graham is that you?
If it was Memphis, they wouldn’t have let him butt in line— tell him to call in a take out, first.
This BBQ is “famous” in it’s own mind. Nothing like real Tejas BBQ.
That would be located in Lockhart, TX the BBQ Capital of Texas.
Austin is full of queer weenies and wannabees. You have to have real cattle people— Texicans and Texans do the work.
And, Stubblefield.. “Stubbs” ain’t shabby either!
“No Lies, No Birth Certificate, NO SERVICE!
The pool photo at AF-1 shows one of the aides with a box, by the name of ... kid you not... Schmuck. Well, he would know.
That would be a real name to be changed in anyone else. Mr. Schmuck and the “so called” bbq. LOL.
Homosexual fruit fly....
Ya know I don’t think the President should have to stand in the line either but I think its just this particular individual that ruins it for the rest of them.
LOL. True, and heckuva song.
That is one poofty poofter. Looks a little like Freddy Mercury of Queen, and we know what he died of.
Yep, I’m always suspicious of guys who shape their eyebrows............
All hat and no cattle.
